Eric Swalwell on Education
Under the current law, teachers are required to ensure that students pass a test. Scoring poorly on a test does not mean that a student is poorly educated. Further, NCLB, prevents teachers from teaching a developing, high-performing child beyond the rigid, prescribed curriculum, i.e., at some point in an academic year, many high-performing students will hit a ceiling and will be deprived further learning.
